Only three minutes from the heart of Bowral, this stunning, sympathetically-refurbished original weatherboard home sits on five elevated acres, perfectly positioned to capture the sun all day, year round. All the rooms are light, spacious and airy, many with access to the deep wrap-around veranda. Tall windows, French doors, numerous open fireplaces, lofty ceilings and beautiful polished floors are among the original features. 

The sweeping entrance staircase leads to a wide hall, formal living room with high bay windows, and a dining room with doors to the billiard room and veranda.

The house is built in a U-shape. The first wing contains the main bedroom with windows facing north and east, a spacious bathroom with shower and freestanding bath, plus another generous bedroom. The second wing offers three more spacious bedrooms and a large bathroom. At the front of the house, a large study, guest suite and separate bathroom offer complete privacy.

The heart of the home is the warm and welcoming, country-style, eat-in kitchen and family room with open fire. The focal point of this open-plan space is the original AGA stove and top-end appliances. French doors open to an extensive north-facing entertainment terrace and lawns, as well as the internal courtyard. A suntrap offers protection from chilly winds.

There is zoned, ducted, central gas heating throughout, with cooling in kitchen/family, living and three bedrooms. A separate self-contained one-bedroom cottage, four-car garage, barn and lawn tennis court complete this impressive estate.
